Storyline

A man named Jake Weaver stumbles across an old Jailakung board which he played around with not knowing it would open up the gates of hell. A demonic force latches onto him and takes over his mind slowly, making the good part of him rot away. Almost like a possession by a demon. Only this demon called itself Jengo Hooper. He starts to suffer from terrible nightmares of evil and macabre activities and slowly drives himself over the edge and turns into a real life psycho cannibal killer. He would butcher victims and perform weird acts of joy upon the dead and if that was not enough he would film and take polaroid photographs of all his activities. After some time he decides he can not going on and tries to commit suicide and its from this point he gets sectioned in Broadmoor Mental prison under the mental health act although the Doctors and medical staff believe he is just suffering from a severe case of Schitzophrenia. This film is a story told through the eyes and mind of this very ... Written by J Wheeler

A true artistic way of filming a movie
1 January 2014 | by davestewart666See all my reviews

I was a little dubious about this title with rumors of extreme gore and violence. Usually low budget films that advertise lots of gore and violence are not worth watching. I was pleasantly surprised when viewing 'Jengo Hooper'. The film is shot in a strange artistic way with lots of weird damaged footage and scrappy cut up shots.

The film is done in a story type of way with the lead character doing some narration and explaining how, why and where. The film does have some intense and gory scenes.

The acting was for the most part good although there are a few that seemed to taint the film slightly with some cheesy lines and wooden acting but we have to remember this is a low budget Grindhouse movie. I feel the director and producer did a great job recreating the old Grindhouse style of movie and bringing it into the present.

Well worth watching, very entertaining and I will be on the look out for more work from the director 'Joe Wheeler' as it seems he is set for a long and successful career especially if he gets funding for projects.
